LANCASTER, Pa. — A bust of Christopher Columbus outside the Lancaster County Courthouse was vandalized over the weekend, Lancaster County Commissioner Josh Parsons said on Twitter.

The statue has already been cleaned by members of the county's facilities team, Parsons said.

"The larger issue is why there is a feeling that if you don't like something you can vandalize or destroy it at will?" Parsons wrote.
